Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - the Kitchen Desk

The desk area in the kitchen serves as a perfect spot to leave messages and important information. Magnetic primer and chalkboard paint make a great backsplash and the built-in cabinetry blend seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen.

The floor is 4" oak with 3 coats of water based polyeurathane. We purposely went with a lower grade oak for more natural knots and variation in the board colors. The water-based poly lightens and accentuates the wood, instead of giving it a yellow, red, or golden hue like oil-based poly does.
